Sing for Hope & Unitex Launch Free Concert Series at New York Healthcare & Elderly CentersBy Logan Martell
Sing for Hope, in partnership with its sponsor Unitex, has announced the launch of a series of free concerts at healthcare and assisted living facilities throughout New York City and Westchester.
The series first started in September, and will present 20 showcases through December. The concerts will feature musicians of jazz, soul, Broadway, and classical genres, with the programs tailored to the community and audience. Previous concerts have brought the artists to locations such as East Haven Nursing Home in the Bronx, King David Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Brooklyn, and Wartburg Nursing Home in Mount Vernon.
“Sing for Hope is proud to bring communities together through the arts, acting as a lifeline for so many musicians throughout the pandemic, and offering the pure bliss of music to seniors in our area,” writes Sing for Hope Co-Founder Camille Zamora. “The program serves to spread the power of community and emotional release that only the arts can provide.”
The concert series is supported by the New York State Council on the Arts’ ReStart NY initiative, which helps companies return to live performances again as they revive the city’s cultural life. Select performances will be recorded for free viewing in the future on Sing for Hope’s Open Arts digital platform.
